Firefighters extra busy

Email News Alerts

Is it the Detroit Lakes Fire Department or Grand Central Station?

The last month and a half has been one of the busiest times for fire calls the department has seen in decades.


In January, the department was called out 31 times.

February continued that "call-a-day" pattern with 16 calls in the first two weeks.

That is far above average, with some recent Januarys only seeing a call or two.
